Protecting the Dignity of Women and Children in Ibanda and Buhweju Districts

Protecting the dignity of women and children is a three-year action implemented by Advance Afrika with support from European Union. It focuses on addressing violence against women and children (VAW/C) in Buhweju and Ibanda districts. Under the action, Advance Afrika and its partners will work closely with existing structures to address gender-specific needs and human rights issues in the selected communities.

The overall objective of the action is to promote functional systems and structures, as well as positive mind-sets that empower and protect the rights of women and children in Ibanda and Buhweju districts by:

  1. Strengthening and constructively engaging community and local government structures to protect the rights of women and children.
  2. Actively transforming attitudes and mindsets of community members towards the protection of the rights of women and children
  3. Enabling women and their families to have increased access to socio-economic opportunities.
